. virginia, go ahead. caller: hi. i wanted to speak on nancy pelosi in support of her voice for aiding the people. one of the things that i think that has happened is the republicans have controlled the message. however, at the end of the day when it comes time for them to stand forth for the voting, people are going to find out that the republicans are selling a product without instructions. and that is going to be detrimental to them and their message that they've been continuing to churn out. it's a marketing ploy. and it's a very good one at this moment, but i think when if educated population decides to actually tune back in and say let's get on the band wagon they're going to find out that the republicans have been selling poison to the people. host: so you're saying thingless change as we get close to november caller: absolutely. i don't necessarily believe in all polls. i do watch them. but i do believe that there is an issue right now with the people that they're calling. i don't think that every person's household has been called and i think they're targeting certain areas to

advantage among independents. we saw it in massachusetts, new jersey, virginia. we are seeing it in delaware tonight. once again, like in kentucky, nevada, alaska, we are seeing the establishment being beaten by the tea party movement and by the conservatives that are saying you know what we've had it with rhino republicans. if you are not going to vote against cap and tax we are not putting new office. big message sent. >> i believe in 1994 worked on the contract with america, i watched this swing as it happened. it is happening earlier here. it is happening deeper. the numbers are more strongly pro republican. the challenge now for the gop, you mention today this race in delaware and nevada those are the two i'm watching close live. will the public vote for someone who doesn't have the same experience as traditional politician? >> sean: yes. i'm answering you're as you go. you asked and i'm answering. >> i guess you never her of the word "rhetorical." doesn't have the knowledge of issues. i'm going to be watching. i think we'll be dialing for your show that nevada debate. i hope we go into

, virginia, is former governor tim kaine, who is now chairman of the democratic national committee. thank you, governor -- thank you, mr. chairman, for joining us. i want to start out talking about health care reform. you think democrats should be out there bragging about it. so what do you make of the democrats who are putting out those ads, bragging that they voted against it? >> well, candy, i travel all over the country. i guess i've been in about 42 states. and most democrats i see on the trail are very proud of the accomplishment and they're talking about it. but you're right, some, particularly house members in districts that, you know, can often get gerrymandered and become tough districts are distancing themselves from the health care bill. i don't tell people how to run their races, but i've been on a ballot seven times and won seven races, and in my experience, you ought to be proud of what you're doing and promote the accomplishments. now, obviously, folks who voted against health care, they're going to talk about why. but i think for the democratic party, generally, this signific
in illinois, west virginia and delaware will take office more or less immediately after votes are canvased and certified and they'll be serving in the lame-duck session. i believe that voters in those states will render a very clear judgment on this lame duck agenda by sending additional reinforcements for our side of the aisle. the campaign strategy of our friends on the other side of the aisle is crystal clear. they are not running on their legislative accomplishments because it's largely unpopular. and they are worried that voters will hold them accountable for the failure of those policies to meet their own stated goals. so they're running campaigns against the american people, some of whom are participating in the political process for the first time. and i'm talking about the tea party movement. calling some of these participants in the process guaranteed by the first amendment of the constitution to redress their government on their grievances and they're deemonizing members of the tea party -- demonizing members of the tea party movement. and president obama has engaged in class wa
, meg whitman, carly fiorina, kelly ayotte in new hampshire, bob mcdonnell in virginia, chris christi in new jersey, all these new candidates have one thing in common. they're outsiders. they're fresh faces and they don't want to grow washington's economy, they want to grow america's economy. they want to stop taking money out of the american people's economy and sending it to washington. >> let me make something clear. >> the tea party is the easiest part to focus on because it's got the brightest feathers and most colorful, but it's much bigger than that. that's why republicans are probably going to gain something like 52, 53 seats. >> i could not agree with you more. >> a americans about keynesianism being dead, they're voting on it this election. >> i could not agree with you more about growing private sebl sector job creation, what i'm saying is policiesing coming out of the tea party are disasoes tive. if you sit down with meg whitman, business leader who's have grown business, run business, they will tell you what the tea party and ron paul are talking about is contrary to good

this plant in winchester, virginia, its last u.s. factory producing plain old incandescent lightbulbs. new energy standards will ought but ban the bulbs. most of which are made overseas. seems the invention that thomoh edison perfected 130 years ago is flickering and fading. >> this is edison's private experimental room at the laboratory. one of the things he was working on a lot in the late 1880s and early 1890s were ways of improving the electric lamp. >> reporter: edison historian paul israel says the great inventor would be torn about the change. >> on the one hand, he would have been disappointed. on the other hand, edison was always somebody kind of looking forward. one of the things he was always very interested in was more efficient ways to generate electricity. so he would have seen that as the future. >> reporter: the incandescent bulb might be edison's most important innovation. notorious for getting by on a few hours' sleep, he wanted to transform the world into a 24-hour culture by lighting up the night. but the old incandescent bulb is inefficient. compact fluorescents use ne
virginia, across pennsylvania, ohio. let's do this. let's go to the video from the marcellus shale coalition. the gas deposit could be worth $2 trillion i today's prices. shale gas production already accounts for about one-fifth of the country's gas production, and the current rate is expected to provide half of the nation's gas by 2030. this was in june we got this report from our affiliate ofwja out of clead rfield, pennsylvan, and there was a leak and polluted drilling water pouring out for 16 hours. no one lived nearby, and no one was injured. no homes within a mile of that. still, these are the stakes. there are massive economic consequences at a time when we are moving more in the direction of natural gas and looking for a way to be energy independent inside the u.s. >> the big question is whether or not tis process is safe, and the answer depends on whom you ask. chris tucker is a spokesman for energy in-depth, which reps natural gas producers from washington, and josh forks, a fill maker behind "gas d.land." tell us why you made this documentary, josh, and what you found. >
a lot to actually gallon virginia nice the left. in fact yesterday at a chamber luncheon in anchorage, berkowitz reached out and endorsed her. the folk that are coming around here are not perceived as conservative, but they have policies of the past rather than recognizing the situation we are in right now. jenna: let's talk a little bit about the two party system. you've called yourself a constitutional conservative. do you believe the way the government is running right now with the two party system is the way that the founders intended it to run or is this country at a political crossroads today. >> it's at a political crossroads in the sense that this nation as a whole, not only here in ask but in many other states week nicest that we cannot go forward with the system we have in great, growing government, growing fiscal debts that are making the country financially. and it is time for one of the parties, and i think that is best placed in the republican party to catch that understanding and put into effect a system that reverses the growth of government. it's an opportunity to skh
island, did not ratify the document until after the country was established. but five states, virginia, massachusetts, new york, maryland and south carolina sent specific amendments that should be added to the document. foremost in each of those states' amendments was the concept of sovereignty or the ability of states to make the decisions. their goal and their concepts were incorporated in the 10th amendment to the constitution which put in written form the unnamed structure that the founding fathers had established in the constitution. as one of our justices on the supreme court said, the constitution protects us from our own best intentions. it divides power among branches of government precisely so we may resist the temptation to concentrate power in one location as the expedient solution to the crisis of the day. for a century and a half, this nation basically honored that concept. in the last half century, though, we have stretched the idea significantly. starting with the progressive era in the early 1900's'. it was president wilson who called this political witch craft. he sai

. >> and president obama held a discussion in the home of falls church, virginia, but he strayed off topic to talk to the crowd about a question he often faces about how he manages stress. >> people ask me, sort of how do i stay calm in my job. the reason i stay calm in my job is that every night at 6:30 no matter how busy i am, i go upstairs and i have a short commute, and i go upstairs and i have dinner with my wife and my daughters. and as long as they are doing good, as long as they are healthy and happy and running around and telling me stories about the crazy things that happened at school today, then there is a certain baseline that just gives you that sense, well, i can take anything, right? now, the flipside is when malia or sasha get a sniffle or an ear infection or a scrape or a bruise, i'm over there just miserable. >> dinner with the family helps anyone out, i would say, with stress. speaking of dinner, wolf, any dinner plans with mr. trump this evening for you? >> no dinner plans. i am getting on the plane to fly back on the shuttle. i will be back -- >> we miss you. >> i think that
